COPY CATS THEME AND DESIGN
Welcome to the wonderful world of cats imagined by the Swedish slot provider NetEnt . The main heroes of the game COPY CATS are colourful cats walking around the city which one must catch in order to hit a big win or even a mega win of £25,000. The game is carried by a swinging jazzy tune which gives way to the sound of reels spinning, evoking traditional land based slot machines.
COPY CATS slot features 3 different cat symbols, each one of them with their own colour, personality but also its own payout value: the red cat bearing a broad smile and raising his eyebrows as if to charm his public, the pink cat wearing a bow around her neck, fluttering her eyelashes in an attempt to melt the heart of the players and finally the grumpy blue cat sticking his tongue out.
As regards the Wild symbol, it is represented by a charming golden cat fooling around with a ball of yarn. The minor symbols represent everything cats love and which is therefore necessary to anyone wishing to capture them: a mouse shaped toy, some milk and some fish.
Finally, the lower value symbols are depicted by colourful cat paws, which all share the same payout value in the paytable (25 coins multiplied by the bet level and the coin value for a winning line of 5 symbols), all these clues enabling us to keep track of them!
The Free Spins have been designed in a truly remarkable way. To trigger them, one must obtain 3 bonus symbols, namely 3 cat bells. After obtaining the first two, the last reel literally finds itself under the spotlight, showered in confetti as it starts spinning again and again, the suspense reaching its peak for the player.
The vibrant colours and cartooning style paired with the animation used for the symbols and the soundtrack chosen by NetEnt has resulted in a refreshing video slot full of life, which does not leave any doubt on the fact that this game is recent. As a matter of fact, it was launched in May 2017, and may be played on various media including tablets, smartphones and PC.
